Mya Explains Waking Up In Time For New Video

R&B siren Mya just finished the video for her new single, "My First Night with You," a clip which includes an appearance by rapper Saafir, whom audiences may recognize from his small role as "Harold" in 1993's "Menace II Society.

The song was co-written by Babyface and Diane Warren, and in the video, Mya tries to convince her father that her date is a good guy before they head out for a big night on the town. The whirlwind evening concludes with Mya and her beau falling asleep on a beach.

To paraphrase the Everly Brothers, what are they gonna tell their mamas? What are they gonna tell their pops? Mya explained what happens next during a recent sit-down with MTV News.

"Well, we have to get home the next morning," she described, "and we wake up, not realizing, oh my gosh, they're going to think that something happened. So we rush home and I climb through my bedroom window really scared, through

a ladder. I make it, and my dad comes in the room and I'm coming out of the bathroom [so he thinks I've just woken up]." [28.8 RealVideo]

Mya is currently working on a follow up to her self-titled debut, and the new record is tentatively due out by year's end.
